DYWIDAG systems feature in landmark buildings worldwide—both below and above ground
There are countless applications for DYWIDAG's products and services in building construction—from pile foundations and vertical elements to slabs and beams.
Our engineers can configure smart geotechnical and post-tensioning systems with structural monitoring services to provide building lifespan management—and ongoing infrastructure intelligence.
DYWIDAG geotechnical rock, soil anchor and pile systems support excavations, slope stability, retained structures, deep excavation, and pile foundations.
Our geotechnical systems stabilize groundworks and can strengthen and restore a building’s underpinning.
DYWIDAG post-tensioning systems strengthen and repair new and existing buildings.
Compared to conventionally reinforced concrete structures, post-tensioning can reduce the amount of reinforcing steel and concrete needed, impacting overall construction costs. Post-tensioned slabs in high-rise structures like hotels, office towers, and residential buildings result in thinner slabs with increased seismic resistance.
Post-tensioning also allows for the earlier removal of formwork—shortening overall construction times. Bonded post-tensioning in transfer girders provides critical strength and overall building stability.
Concrete operations are supported by DYWIDAG's concrete accessories, including the DYWIDAG Threadbar™ form tie system, used to form horizontal and vertical concrete elements and restrain the applied concrete pressures.
DYWIDAG systems support and stabilize commercial and industrial buildings, tall towers and chimneys worldwide
Post-tensioning the foundation slabs used in industrial buildings ensures they remain levelled and crack-free. DYWIDAG anchor bolts and tie rods support and stabilize the steel frames used to construct commercial and industrial buildings.
We configure post-tensioning systems using precast concrete elements and prefabricated tendons to optimize installation time e.g. at modern wind tower plants. Configuring strand tendons in post-tensioning systems strengthens and secures the concrete shell of power plant cooling towers.
Post-tensioning systems create safer, stronger, smarter parkades
Building parkades with wider stalls and driving lanes and fewer columns creates additional parking places—increasing incomes.
Post-tensioning enables the construction of parkades with thinner slabs—and barrier cables to provide added pedestrian and vehicular safety.
DYWIDAG systems support the construction of stadiums and arenas worldwide
The large scale of an open venue like a stadium or arena requires the fine precision, levelled and crack-free slabs provided by post-tensioning.
Large post-tensioned transfer beams—or DYWIDAG Threadbars™—reinforce ring beams. Roof structures can be supported by external tendons and stay cables. In the event of a fire, DYWIDAG's fire protection systems provide excellent safety protection.
Post-tensioning systems offer more flexible floor plans for highrises
Post-tensioning produces thinner slabs with increased seismic resistance, reduces the overall height and weight of a structure—and minimizes a building’s vertical and horizontal loads.
Post-tensioning also offers more flexible floor plans for offices and condominiums with fewer columns and shear walls—while high-strength vertical reinforcing reduces column sizes.
